The act of getting into the mindset of another person and acting as they would.

Use of knowledge that is not known in-game and breaks the fourth wall.

1590260639405.png Sorry, cant seem to get my screenshots to work.

Name:

Godffrey Levinson

Age:

22

Culture:

Oserian

Can your character read and write?:

Yes

Story & Biography (please go into detail, we recommend two paragraphs but expect at least one. Please outline character history, personality traits and the things that make your character unique. Have fun with this section!)

Godffrey comes from a poor house in Oserian lands where they are just able to get by. He lives with his mother, two brothers and a sister. His father died due to a clash between the Oresian knights and some Northernmen. His father was just caught in the crossfire and was hit with multiple arrows from the Northernmen, one got caught in the back of his neck, severing an artery and causing him to bleed to a gruesome death. He now has a justified hate for the Northernmen. Godffrey was 20 at the time and had to witness his father's horrible death. One of his brothers is 12, the other is 8. His sister was born just before their father's death. He does most of the work around the farm, tilling the soil and whacking weeds.

Godffrey ventured away from their humble farm to seek vengeance on the Northernmen. Wishing to become an adventurer of sorts, he heads to a local city in Oserian territory where he hopes to get some training of sorts. Unbeknownst to him, he is an excellent marksman and almost always hits his target (he did get some training throwing rocks at crows that would attack their crops).

(Please note although the character you apply with can commit illegal or immoral acts you cannot do these things on the server without an Intrigue application. This can be applied for once you are whitelisted.) Found here:

(You are also able to apply with a noble but keep in mind you cannot play a noble character on the server unless you join an accepted noble house or apply for one.) Found here:

Section 4/4 - Open-ended questions
Please answer at least three of the questions to show how your character would interact with the world. Delete the spares (if applicable). Please include at least one paragraph for each question you answer.

Question 1

You stumble outside into the open air after some heavy drinking in an Oserian tavern. Just before you're about to pass an alleyway, a hooded man rushes out of it and runs for it - seemingly, he has both a blade and some jewellery on him. You take a quick peek in the alleyway to see a feminine figure collapsed on the ground, holding her hands over a bleeding wound in her torso. The thief is about to escape and the woman seems in critical condition. You...

Find a rock that is laying on the ground and toss it hard thanks to the strong muscles from the farming. Even while drunk, you are an excellent shot. The rock hits the thief in the back of the head and knocks him unconscious. You rush to retrieve the jewelry and bring it to the woman, helping her get to an infirmary as quickly as you can. Once at the infirmary you dont ask for a reward for retrieving the jewelry OR for saving her life. You simply smiles and say that you are glad to help. You are a very honorable person and would not take advantage of such a situation.

Question 2

You are on your way to the Korsian city of Telth to sell some wares. Upon reaching the front gates you are stopped by the guard. They deny you entry for the time being as the traffic into the city is too high. You are effectively forced to wait in the refugee camp located between the two gates for the time being. The camp is
filled with shopping stalls and refugees sleeping on the floor. How do you spend your time in the camp?

You find some place to set up a place to stay and wait for the traffic in the city to clear up some so you can sell your wares. You need some food and water, so you sell some of your wares at a local shopping stall to get some money to buy food and water for the wait. After a while, the traffic clears up and you are let into the city to sell the rest of what you brought with you. After selling your stuff, you travel back to your home where you store the money you gained from the profits.

Question 3

You've gotten lost and wandered awhile into Drahl lands, eventually finding yourself in Crookmire Swamp, where you decide to settle for the night. Finding a meal to buy for the evening takes some effort, but you do come across an old crone in ragged clothing, who offers to sell you some sea-looking food. She doesn't ask much, but warns you that eating it is 'unpleasant' to outsiders. You...

As you have found nothing else to eat, you are forced to buy the food. But you are cautious and decide to boil it in some water before eating it. You carefully prepare it in the now-purified water to make a meal for yourself. It tastes absolutely abysmal but it's all you had, so you try to stomach it and eat the rest of the sea creature. After eating, you gain the strength to wander a while longer and are able to find a way out of the Drahl lands.

You’re almost there! Your application is pending.

There are only a few things to change for a final decision.

Make the following edits to your application:

1. Your powergaming definition is lacking. would expand your understanding of the definitions and remake the definitions.

2. Your skin has a dark face and glowing eyes, which doesn't fit a low fantasy setting well. To take a better screenshot I'd recommend heading ingame, pressing f5 till you can see your character. Google how to find the folder with screenshots so you can attach the image. You can message me if you have more issues with this.

3. Although your questions have good detail, they do imply powergaming at points. I would try to rewrite them to reflect on how you would interact with other players on the server. Trying to do something rather than necessarily being successful.

I can see you put a lot of effort into making this application and as such I only have a few issues with this application. I sincerely believe you'd be a great fit as soon as you make these corrections.
Once that is done, make a comment affirming you have made these changes and your application will be reviewed again as soon as possible.

Good luck!
